This morning you may have seen the leaked trailer for Rayman Legends showing off the Wii U’s snazzy Near Field Communication features, but who wants to play with a small tablet when you can have a whole coffee table?
Charles Lushear of custom design studio The Boho Workbench in Venice Beach, California has designed a Nintendo-chic piece of furniture that also doubles as a giant NES controller. The table measures 42″ x 18.25″ x 18″ and comes in four different varieties.
The controller table is made to order and can be crafted out of composite or hardwood materials. It also comes with a removable glass top for when you’re not playing games and optional USB capabilities. You can choose to give your table full NES controller functions or simply order a nonfunctional, but still very kickass, one.
You can purchase an old NES controller for about $5 on eBay. But because this isn’t just any old controller (it’s also a table,) ordering one will set you back about $3,500 depending on what you add to it.
Lushear is also researching adding in Wii capability. Let’s hope his project gives the Wii U tablet a run for its money too.
